I didn’t like it. There were a number of points that might have made me interested – the thriller aspect, the mystery, the twists. None of this overshadowed the stupidity of the cops and the strange timing of events that meant I felt the American public were able to vent their anger or passion about the events a might too quickly.

A study of how media and public rip all truths apart and turn trivia into mountains and people’s lives into some personal vendetta. Also a reminder that you cant believe in anyone and that psychotic people are really, really good looking but ultimately not someone to trust with your bunny. Or maybe that was just a bit OTT as well.

My wife read the book and said that it was a squirmingly good read and that the film was a good rep of this. I found that none of the buttons that should have been pushed were touched and that this was another missed opportunity.

Not for me.
